Today I’m a guest at Anne E. Johnson’s blog, where I talk about putting women (plural!) of agency and influence at the core of the story.
Traditional gender roles are hard to combat for the fiction-writer, especially in a genre like fantasy which has a long tradition of distressed damsels being captured and needing saving. Even for a writer who is aware of this problem and wants to defy it, knowing how to let the females drive the story takes a lot of thought and practice. Today’s guest, Blair MacGregor, generously shares her advice.
In other news, I’m not changing another word in Sand of Bone until its final edits are sent to me. That means it’s time to both work on Breath of Stone!
